appears to be flexible when it comes to the top 2%. quote, president obama signalled he wouldn'tnsist tax rates on upper income americans rise to clinton era peaks as part of a deficit reduction deal. the white house's flexibility first described by democrat erskine bowles after meetings with mr. obama and others confirmed by administration officials could envision tax rates increase from their current levels but less than clinton era levels. would you agree to a deal, senator? call it in the middle. 37%. >> well, the problem with that is raising those tax rates on those folks really doesn't address the major problem which is the spending that's going on. >> let me stop you there. i understand. forgive me for interrupting you. i know you want to talk about spending. on the top 2% would you agree to a deal in the middle say taxing at 37%? >> i don't think it's a good idea to raise taxes on anybody at times like this. but it only would fund the government for less than 7 days. it's not a solution. the markets need a credible signal that we are serious at dealing with the issue of our ma

chemical weapons would, as hillary clinton has made clear and president obama made clear that would invoke a completely different response from us. i think, though, we've got to be looking for ways to try to bring this ghastly conflict to an end. >> but what you have said that to piers morgan, you said we need to ramp up pressure on aside and i think there are people in the state department who said we've been trying to do that. what needs to be done? >> well, i think we are. but, i think we've also got to look at ways now that we give support to the syrian opposition, especially around this notion of how you protect certain parts of the territory for them. and really just send a signal to assad that this will only have one outcome. the important thing here is that is to show that in the end it is a matter of time. it's -- it's when and not if. now there are also, i think, signs that for russia and china, i think they would be prepared, possibly, to look at a way you could manage an outcome of this, so that you get some form of agreement that -- >> provide asylum, we're getting him
